Do not place your spa under overhead power lines. Try to stay at least 10 feet to the side of any overhead wires. Be certain that your installation will meet all city and local safety codes and requirements.
To combat the summer’s heat you may want to locate your spa where the sun doesn’t shine on it all day long. You don’t want the spa under a tree, however a tree to the side can sometimes block much of the day’s sun. Also try to locate the spa near a house entry door. This way you don’t have to trudge through a lot of snow. Do not place your spa under eves as icicles can fall off and damage both the cover and the spa.
Indoor installations require adequate ventilation. When the spa is in use, considerable amounts of moisture are produced. This moisture can damage walls, floors and ceilings. However you can over come these issues by planning ahead. A simple ventilation fan will remove much of the air born humidity. You can apply water proof paints and flooring materials. Try to use flooring materials that don’t become slippery when they get wet.
Prevent dirt and foliage from being tracked into your spa by using concrete or pavers for paths to the spa. Check the location of trees and spill paths from gutters to see if wind or rain will sweep debris into the spa.
It is best that you do not place your spa under a tree. Cleaning tree sap off the spa is no fun either. A fallen branch can easily damage the cover and the spa.
In a cold climate, bare trees won’t provide much privacy. Consider the view of your neighbors when you locate your spa. You can always build an inexpensive lattice type fence on any side you want to block out. A lattice fence will allow you to see out but still block you from the neighbors.
Think about the direction you will be facing when you’re sitting in the Spa. Do you have special landscaping in your yard or a spot with a nice breeze? What about the sunset? Consider these things when you plan your location.
